The book is filled with beautiful illustrations featuring multicultural children from all over the world and my class enjoyed seeing kids who looked like them in the illustrations. The song is included on a CD sung by Judy Collins and although the song is beautifully performed it was a bit classical for my students who said that they would rather that I sang them the song instead of playing the CD (and normally they're excited to hear CD's because they hear me sing every day).
This is a book that can be enjoyed by kids of all ages in a classroom format and kids 4-8 who are reading independently.
The CD inserted in the back has Collins recording of "When you wish...." Plus two other performances, recorded exclusively for this book. The first - "The Other Side of My World" was written by Collins. The second "All My Pretty Little Horses" - despite it being credited as a song "that Judy Collins wrote" on the flyleaf - is (as correctly noted in the credits of the book) a traditional song. Collins recorded a version of this song in 1990. But this version is still beautiful.
I do wish that the publishers had included the lyrics to "The Other Side...." In the back, so that parents - as well as their children - could follow along.
This book one that children are sure to enjoy and maybe introduce them to Collins' five decades or more of recordings.

Very disappointed that the words in the book did not match the song. It is confusing to read it and know the real words to the song. Hope I can take it back.Published 12 months ago by a custormer

Illustrations are beautiful, but the children didn't like the music, and they didn't care for the "fate" message. Not sure I'll be using this one in class again.Published 20 months ago by Deborah
